One item on menu in different color (OJS, Native Child Theme)

Hi @NateWr

We are using your child theme ( Thank you for this theme, it`s really nice and usefull for me.

I would like to know what to do to have just one item on the main menu in different color. (in my case I would like to have “Manuscript Submission” on the left site of the menu in different color to mark it clearly.

What I done until now (but without result):

  1. In the primaryNavMenu.tpl file I identified the “Manuscript Submission” menu with id=“sub” like this:
    …a id=“sub” href="{url router=$smarty.const.ROUTE_PAGE page=“submission”}">
    {translate key=“information.submission”}

  2. I created an .css file like this:
    .pkp_navigation_primary pkp_nav_list {
    body#home ul#navigationPrimary li a#sub,
    color: green !important;

  3. I uploaded the css file on “settings”, “website” but it doesn`t changed the color.

Someone with experiance can help?


If you are using 3.0.2 that you uploaded from the PKP site, then it could be this issue: Custom uploaded CSS files get loaded too early · Issue #2266 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub

The syntax on this isn’t quite right. Can you send a link to the site where you’d like to do this? I can take a quick look and recommend some CSS code.

This is the link to my site:

Thank you very much in advance for your help

Could some one tell some css code to put the entire article in justify style? I have abstract and references in justify style. I am ysing ajngya’s embeded plugin which embeds xml into html on abstract page (hooking on to the abstract).
